GM to End Production of Envoy XUV
Fri Feb 18, 4:51 PM ET

OKLAHOMA CITY - General Motors Corp. is ending production of the Envoy XUV, a five-passenger sport utility vehicle that can also be used as a pickup truck.

The plant will continue to make seven-passenger versions of the Envoy, including the Envoy Denali, a luxury version of the vehicle, Kathy Odem, a spokeswoman at the plant that makes the vehicle, said Friday.

Inalfa Roof Systems Inc., which makes the sliding rear roof for the XUV, said GM told its suppliers last week that it would stop making the vehicles amid lackluster sales. Production, which began 18 months ago, will cease March 31. The XUV is made exclusively at the Oklahoma City plant.

The company said the decision will not affect jobs at the plant. GM employs more than 2,200 people in Oklahoma City. Workers also assemble seven-passenger versions of the Chevrolet TrailBlazer and Isuzu Ascender.

No real surprise. It seemed like a loser to begin with.

In his ugly Honda Element.

This is just a guess. I would think that most people that would buy something like this, probably have or have access to a truck for the few times they need one.

I worked for one of the shipping companies out at GM here in OKC when they were starting to make them, and they were pieces of crap. It took forever for them to fix a flaw with the engineering causing the them to leak badly.

I thought they were kinda cool... didn't know they were poorly engineered. Oh well - won't affect me either way.
